Even the best residential or commercial roofing products can succumb to wear and tear given enough time. Over the course of its lifespan, your roof will require periodic repairs and maintenance to stave off leaks and minor issues. However, at some point your roof will need to be replaced entirely.
It’s not always easy to know whether to repair or replace a roof, so here are a few tips from our experts at A1 Siding & Roofing to help you decide.
How Old Is Your Roof?
The age of your roof is a big factor in the repair vs. replacement debate. Residential roofing systems typically last from 20-25 years, depending on the material. If your roof is at the upper end of this range, it might be more cost effective to replace it rather than pouring more money into repairing a failing roof.
Have Your Roof Inspected
Contact your local roofing professional and schedule an appointment for a full inspection of your roof. Inspections and routine maintenance are recommended at least once every season and can help you spot minor problems before they become serious. A professional contractor can also make recommendations about whether it’s better to replace the whole roof or if a simple repair job is sufficient.
Energy and Efficiency
A roof replacement gives you the opportunity to upgrade the energy efficiency of your roof. Consider asking your roofing contractor about replacing your old roofing system with an eco-friendly product to recoup some the costs of the project.
